box hill community art centre


Earlier this year I began teaching at Box Hill Community Art Centre. I have been teaching an adult painting class as well a couple of youth art classes and I have met some gorgeous students so far.

bhcac is a just such a beautiful place to work, it is a purpose built arts centre surrounded by community gardens and when I arrive there I instantly feel inspired. I teach in some beautiful studios that are brightly lit by the high ceiling windows (wonderful for natural light) and my painting class last term had a couple of sessions outside using the gardens inspiration.

There is also a central gallery that exhibits some of the artworks from City of Whitehorse’s impressive collection and at the moment has an exhibition of some of my students’ artworks. I worked with a group of young artists over two months, taking their ideas and creating artworks for exhibition.
